The Wonderful World of Weaving

Summerlee Museum of Scottish Industrial Life
16+ yrs Discover the creative and therapeutic art of hand weaving over the course of a one day workshop. Led by textile artist Amy Bond, participants will learn how to set up a hand frame loom on which to practice essential weaving techniques, such as plain weave, twills, herringbone, basket weave, hand manipulated structures and tapestry. Participants will create textures and patterns using a variety of exciting yarns and materials, and will be encouraged to freely experiment with shape and colour.
